About Us

We are a family run mini bus hire business, based in Hertfordshire. Trevor and Janet Primett first started Basic Travel mini bus hire fifteen years ago in Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire with just a single mini-bus. 

Our aim was to provide low cost reliable chaffeured travel thats where the name Basic Travel came from.

Since then we have grown substantially and now all of our mini buses for hire are mercedes, offering comfort to our customers.

Although travelling in our mini buses is now much more luxurious we have maintained our basic principles and still strive to provide a high quality, reliable service.

Driver/escort appearance and attitude is extremely important to us, we try to employ helpful and friendly staff to help our custmers where ever possible. All staff are fully trained and police checked. If you are organising a formal event we will ensure our staff is dressed for the occasion.

All of our buses undergo regular maintenance checks, are fitted with seatbelts and are fully insured. Our buses are always clean and our image is of upmost importance to us. We also have a trailor if needed to convey extra luggage and sports equipment.

We will always try and make your experience with basic travel enjoyable.
